Our recent newsletter included a Q and A on SNBC enrollment that incorrectly described the opt-out procedure. To remain on Fee for Service Medical Assistance (Traditional MA), you must return an opt-out form. Doing nothing will result in being placed in a managed care plan.
We apologize for the confusion, we based our report on information provided by the Department of Human Services. Please note that that “Guide to Special Needs BasicCare Enrollment” found on the SNBC main page of the DHS site describes benefits/regulations as they are now, but does not apply to the new expansion.
For more information, visit the “Expansion Outline” found here. The Disability Linkage Line is a great resources for asking questions about this transition: 866-333-2466.
